NCAA chief: Sandusky charges `appalling'

Here’s a statement issued Monday by NCAA president Mark Emmert regarding the charges against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky: “This is a criminal matter under investigation by law enforcement authorities and I will not comment on details. However, I have read the grand jury report and find the alleged assaults appalling. As a parent and an educator, the notion that anyone would use a position of trust to prey on children is despicable. My thoughts and concern goes out to the alleged victims and their families.”
